WELCOME

This blog was created to act as a record of the cards and other projects that I have made. It is for both my own reference and to help inspire anyone who wants to take a look.

I'd love it if you'd leave me a comment so that I know what you think of my projects and that you've been to visit!

Anyone can comment, even those who don't have a blog. (Just look for the word 'Comments' under the three little pictures at the end of each post). Readers without a blog can add an anonymous comment, but please leave your name (and docrafts username if applicable) so I know who you are!

Slideshows of all the cards I've uploaded to my blog can be found at the bottom of the page.

Blue and Brown Penny Black Cat with Balloons

I love this cute cat image - perfect for any cards you have to make for the men in your life.

The cat image is from the Penny Black B for Bubbly stamp set. The image was stamped in Versafine Onyx Black archival pigment ink and watercoloured using Whispers Brushstroke markers. Anita's 3D Gloss was added over the balloons.

The 'Happy Birthday' balloons from the Hero Arts Birthday Messages stamp set were stamped using the two brown inks in the Brilliance Tiramisu triple inkpad. All the image panels were matted onto blue and brown cardstock.

Patterned paper from the DCWV Old World mat stack was adhered to the lower part of the card blank and a length of light blue grosgrain ribbon from Dovecraft was attached over the join.
The inside of the card was also decorated using a strip of the Old World paper and a length of the grosgrain ribbon. The 'Happy Birthday' stamp, from the Hero Arts Birthday Messages stamp set, was stamped using the dark brown ink from the Tiramisu ink pad.
